new travel systems

Tourism professionals and governments are searching for a way out to keep the tourism sector alive by finding new travel systems and solutions or alternatives in their own way. The global covid-19 pandemic has severely damaged the tourism industry, but now the industry must find a way out with new travel systems solutions. While the private sector turns towards individual solutions to reduce its losses, governments and international organizations are working on creating standard systems to be used worldwide. We hope that the ideas spoken about or realized will enable us to travel as soon as possible.

IATA Travel Pass

As the world is seeking new travel systems and solutions in tourism and especially in the airlİne sector, The International Air Transport Association (IATA) reached the last phase for a digital health pass. The IATA Travel Pass will manage the safe flow between governments, airlines, laboratories, and travelers of required testing or vaccine details. In this way, safe travel will be paved, and there will be a continuous inspection.

British Airways Sells Its Items

For some of us, it is a passion to travel and experience something specific to air travel. British Airways also thought about this and tried to give its customers a little bit of pleasure during the pandemic. Food plates, cabin products, and more offered to customers for a feel of air travel. Also, the items from the retired airplane Boejing 747, is available for sale.
